On Wednesday 15th May 2019 the showroom workstation will be hosting an event to launch Sheaf & Porter Rivers Trust, whose vision is to help Sheffield rediscover and regenerate its own urban rivers. The event includes a screening of documentary Lost Rivers, accompanied by a talk from Simon Ogden, Chair of the Sheffield Waterways Strategy Group. The film examines hidden waterways and underground rivers in cities around the world and introduces us to the people dedicated to exploring and restoring them.
You can find more information here.
The launch event is priced at the regular film ticket price. Advance booking is strongly recommended for those interested.

- Restoring Sheffield’s wildlife habitats
- Creating a City image for Sheffield
- Celebrating Sheffield’s heritage
- River stewardship
- Continuous public access
